This used to be a political blog. It isn’t anymore. I am about to talk about politics. You should read anyway OR ELSE YOU WILL GET EBOLA!
So we have a national “Ebola” scare and no confirmed surgeon general. If you are one of the people that has Fox News where your brain should be you probably blame President Obama. Truth is he has nominated someone for the position… but the person apparently supports gun control… not that this is something he would have any influence over as surgeon general… but the NRA has decided to put pressure on Senators, not to confirm him as surgeon general.
So to review; the Surgeon General who is a key figure in national health policy isn’t confirmed during a potential national health issue because in his personal opinion you shouldn’t be able to walk into a 7-11 carrying an assault rifle and purchase another assault rifle without even telling them who you are… because a bunch of ignorant special interest group members decided to lean on some Senators.
Let us not forget that the real cause here is the fact that President Obama didn’t get progressives their pony and unlimited supply of birthday cake by 2010 so it was necessary they stay home so a bunch of car salesmen and dentists could get elected to congress and hijack the agenda for the next 4 – 8 (or more) years.
